“The EIC distinction  has allowed us to maintain best practice best approach and the continual search to find out the best ways we can offer the residents and families of Desert Hills Memory Care the difference between living and living well.”

– Chantelle Hudson, Desert Hills Memory Care, Hemet, CA, EIC site since 2009

“The EIC distinction makes our caregivers more comfortable leaving loved ones here. It makes the employees have pride in their work. It makes me feel really good that our clients are having quality of life”

– Vicki Kerr, Caring Days, Tuscaloosa, AL, EIC site since 2014

“We are proud to be the only day center in the State of Louisiana to receive this distinction–and four times since 2009. In a society in which elder care, especially care for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia, is often lacking, I feel it is important for care settings to have the accountability and structure to assure that affected individuals are receiving the utmost in quality care and that their needs are met through a person-centered philosophy.    Having such a standard raises the bar for everyone else to provide excellence in care and for those who don’t, questions should be asked, ‘Why not?’ We have had nothing but positive experiences through the EIC process.”

– Dana Territo, Charlie’s Place, Baton Rouge, LA, site since 2009

“Families are quite proud of our certification, and word of mouth throughout the community has had a positive impact on our community. Because of the higher standard that AFA requires, many families, and other health care professionals, recognize that we provide a higher standard of care to those we serve.”

– Mary Jane Eicke – Juniper Village Wellspring Memory Care at Williamstown – site since 2010

“It has been a great experience working with AFA’s team – everyone has been very accommodating and professional. The EIC audit process has also been really helpful in prompting us to review all of our program practices, to make any necessary changes, and to adopt new policies that reinforce our commitment to delivering the best standard of dementia care in all that we do.”
